Yeah they have 4 E85 pumps. Price was $0.20 higher than the last time I got E85 on Gulf to Bay though but well worth it in my situation.

Was there yesterday filling up the tank. Free soda for the grand opening!

Did a 9gallon mix with the rest 93octane, I run 18.7psi between 3,500-4,000rpm tapering to 11.3lbs @ redline, no ignition corrections to speak of on this fill.

Looks like there's a WaWa opening near Gandy/US19 too I drove by it yesterday on the way home from thorntons. Hopefully the WaWa will have E85 too.

I drove through the WaWa lot and I didn't see any E85 pumps.

I finally had a chance to test Bollinger's E85 versus Thornton's E85 (Corner of Ulmerton and Starkey location) and Bolinger's tested out at around 74% and Thorton's checked in at about 85%. Hope this helps some of you guys and it confirms what some of us thought was the case.

Nice! thank you for posting the results! I wonder if Bollingers got a new shipment of E85? I swear, no matter how much I put in, I couldn't get my timing to clean up.

I asked him how often he gets a delivery and he said every few months.
